    SC quenches Bengaluru’s thirst: Find out how

    The court said that Karnataka would get an additional 14.75 tmcft of Cauvery water. The court while delivering the verdict said that Karnataka will provide 177.2 TMC water to Tamil Nadu. This would mean Karnataka will get additional 14.75 tmcft as compared to the tribunal's order which had ordered release of 192 tmcft. As a result of this TN's water share has been reduced to 177.25 tmcft.

    The court said that it increased the Cauvery water share of Karnataka by 14.75 tmc ft because of increased drinking water requirement of Bangalore residents and other industrial activities. TN will have to now bank on 10 TMC ground water available with it.

    The court said that Karnataka would be releasing 177.25 tmc ft Cauvery water to TN from Biligundulu every year.
